How long is your commute to the course you play? - Page 2

post #19 of 50

I probably have 8 courses within 20 minutes of work and home but I only play 3... 

post #20 of 50

The course I typically play is about 2.5 blocks away.  Well, the green for the 2nd hold and tee box for 3 is about 2.5 blocks away.  The clubhouse is about a mile drive.

22 miles...

My club is about 6 miles from the house - 15 minutes on a Saturday morning. 45 minutes if I were to venture out after 3 during the week - which is why I have never gone there for a *range session.*

I don't have "a" course.   In Michigan, there are so many that it is easy to play a different course each week and not run through them all.   I live within 1/2 mile of a local course but there must be over 25 within a 30 minute drive.

My commute is 10 minutes drive, 7 miles from my doorstep to my home golf course.

I hate you all. Minimum is 45 min. Average is 1.5 hours. If I take the commuter train, 2 hours.

Where are you?  Commuter train to play golf?  WOW.   I guess I was blindsided and thought golf courses were plentiful everywhere.

Where do you normally play?

I live in the heart of a big city. Have to get out to the suburbs to play. Car or train, whatever. LI, NJ, Hudson Valley. Don't get me started what a PITA it is to get to a range.

4 minutes.

I don't really have a home course since moving to SLC, but the 6 that I play most often are all under 20 mins. Closest is 5 mins. There are probably 15 courses to choose from that are within 20 mins.

I live off the strip in vegas, Driving to courses range from 15 minutes to about an hour (pauite,pharump,boulder city). I couldn't imagine having to always play one course all the time. I like the experience of trying new courses. My goal was to play all the Las Vegas courses on Golfnow but they added the Wynn ($500 a round) to the site so that goal isn't going to happen

One mile away from house are two 18 holes courses and two 9 hole courses. It takes me probably three minutes to get to there, with the exception of a few pesky traffic lights.

2 courses "near" me. The first one which is the better one, but really busy on weekends is 30 minutes drive. The other one is 40 minutes. Before I bought my car I use to do it on my 125cc Honda Wave with my clubs across my shoulders and resting on the back seat! That was fun coming back in the dark on country roads with clueless Thai drivers flying past. I have been known to travel over 3 hours to play golf, but that was to play Amata Springs in Chonburi which is rated as one of the best in the country.

Oh yeah all the big and fancy 18 hole courses are the ones I actually have to drive further to get to. The ones near me though offer everything I need, including a driving range.

If i dont want to spend more than 40/round then I have to drive anywhere from 30-60 min. Being in Houston, it could be 10 miles but those 10 miles could take an hour with traffic. I personally like the drive to the course, I like to do some course planning on my way there. 

 

If you dont like your course, take the time to drive somewhere else.....
